  1. What is in your Windows Event Log when the crash happens? Do you have a manual Windows pagefile setting? If yes, switch back to auto and the problem will be fixed.
  2. "Lowest power, but dirt rally 1.0 looks like 2.0 compared to dirt rally 2.0." Dirt Rally 1 has a lot worse shadow and lightning system than 2.0. Everything looks unnatural and bleak. Grass on the terrain is also a lot better with 2.0. Because of these resource intensive stuffs, DR2.0 had to compromise on the resolution on low powered consoles. "Lowest power, but Forza Horizon 4 has mind-blowing graphics and performance." Forza Horzion 4 is PC and Xbox only game from a first party developer with much more money, time and special support for research and optimization from Microsoft. Codemasters hasn't got any special treatment developing their games and has to do a Playstation 4 version also. Think about this before you go "just go away, expert" on somebody, who know what he's talking about.

    You can buy calibrated Dell IPS monitors for 250-300 USD. The problem is that most people don't care about the proper viewing experience, so they just use their monitors with crappy settings. All they need is an expert to calibrate their display.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 Roadbook - June 7, 2019

    Test you monitor with this black level tester and brighten you screen accordingly: "On an ideal monitor, all of them should be distinguishable, even the very dark first row of squares.".
  5. Pace notes are very inconsistent and I struggle with it more and more as I drive faster cars, especially at night. USA stage, almost the end of it. I drove perfectly, I did at least 12 corners labelled as 4. Co-driver says "4 left tightens 3", I go in as usual and I fly out of the corner at the beginning. It was a 3 or 2...driving with memorizing the tracks is faster. DR1 had much better pace notes.

    End of bug fixes

    Early 2000's were good times. People couldn't post on forums urging companies to do something. We bought the game and played it. When a patch came, we installed it, but we didn't care about it in the meantime.
  7. I have no problem with the rain sound using interior cameras. My co-driver volume is reduced to 50, with everything else at the default 100 and I still hear the co-driver clearly over the rain sound. Are you sure you have your speakers correctly set?
  8. But PS4 is much faster than Xbox, so it's a lot more easier to fix. How many times do we have to write this? 🙂 What is easier? Buying a Ferrari for 100,000 USD or for 1000 USD? Same applies here. Fixing for Xbox is a lot harder or it's possible that it cannot be fixed, because it's that slow.
  9. Yeah, the new consoles will come out 2 years from now, so you can stay with Xbox One S for now. Next time, buy the console which is the most powerful and you won't have this problem. Also, you can sit further away from your screen, so you will see a sharper image. Everything looks sharp if you watch it from far enough.
  10. Buy an Xbox One X if you want better graphics. It's 5 times more powerful than Xbox One S and has super sharp 4K resolution with almost all games 🙂 When you buy something get some information first, because you could have seen it on the internet that the Xbox One S has the worst resolution and graphics of all the consoles, so you shouldn't expect super sharp image from it.
  11. FFB is gone on v1.2.1 with a Logitech Formula Force GP. If I switch the device type to Controller from Steering wheel, I have FFB, but its so bad, because it is optimized for gamepads.
  12. Defining a custom device in the device_defines.xml solves the problem according to the Input Device Guide section 6: Manual Data Entry. Thank you Codemasters.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    They said next week....it's above your post and in the v1.4 patch notes. What makes you think we will have it tomorrow? 🙂
  14. Yeah, hopefully it will solve the problem, but my FFB worked before patch v1.2.1. It doesn't take any effort to revert the change that did this, an hour maximum. They could have done it easily in patch 1.3 1 month ago.

    ffb fixed, some comms from devs

    Change the TAA and / or Motion Blur settings, but I think TAA is your main problem, because DR1 doesn't have that 🙂
  16. Between stages or between the menus and stages audio volume can go up or down and I have to readjust it. I have High dynamic range set in audio preferences, so maybe the bug is that it switches to low dynamic range....
  17. If graphics is so important to him, he should have bought az Xbox One X or Playstation 4.
  18. I don't think headlight interacting with rain is 100% wrong, because the same applies to fog in real life too. You can see much better with the headlights off in heavy fog, but you can't do that legally, because other drivers on the road can't see you. If you drive in fog next time and have no other cars on a small road, try it, turn off the headlights for 5 seconds.
  19. Every hardware is more capable if you throw in a lot of money, lot of time and lot of people. You could make 80% of the games more beautiful on every console, but companies don't have infinite resources or even the same resources for every game.
  20. The Forza series are from a first party developer with a lot of help from Microsoft, exclusive to Xbox and PC. Of course it runs better. On Playstation 4 the Uncharted series, the Last of Us and God of War are the same, they look better than other games on Playstation 4 for the same reason. DR2.0 is a multiplatform racing game from a smaller studio without exclusive partnership... you know, it's harder that way.

    Calibration means calibrating the display with a professional calibrator who uses professional tools...in-game settings are another thing.
  22. Other consoles have much more powerful graphics processor, so they can provide a cleaner and more detailed image. Before you buy a console you can look it up which is the fastest. If you purchase a slower console, the graphics will be blurrier. This is the case with every game.

    Like in real life. Do you go skiing or things like that? You go blind if you don't wear proper glasses and the snow looks like one big white sheet. Anyway turn off the useless effects, like Bloom, Lens flares, Chromatic aberration, Light streaks, Lens Dust and calibrate your monitor if you can. Every game company and movie people uses calibrated monitors, so that's when the game looks like exactly it was intended. If you don't then lower your brightness because a lot of monitors and TVs come with default settings that is perfect for blind people. I have my monitors brightness at 10 out of 100.
  24. This doesn't mean the game is incomplete. If you connect a Playstation 2 or Playstation 3 to your TV it will be blurry too, because the resolution is low, not because the PS2 or the PS3 is incomplete. The Xbox one S is the slowest console and it can mean that maybe they can't do anything about it. Still, I would wait 1 more month or an answer from Codemasters, beucase there is support for the game for a long time.
